What Alibaba and Tencent have achieved in China, PayTM in India and MPesa in Africa are great examples of impactful stories. We talk to many emerging market players and highlight their efforts to create such leap frog moments.

    It’s not all doom and gloom for fintech. Now is the time to build.

    It’s not all doom and gloom for fintech. Now is the time to build.

    We consume a lot of information each day. When we read the latest news about what’s going on in fintech, venture capital, and the different spectrums of new technology, we aren’t always provided context around the broader story, nor are we often brought into the lives of those building what’s next. Context is important, as is understanding how technologies are impacting our lives. Those that shape the news can either remove or fan the flames of biases around our perception of these changes and how they impact our communities. In this episode of One Vision, Bradley chats with Mary Ann Azevedo, Senior Report at Techcrunch, about how she sees the current fintech landscape, and how she approaches the craft and responsibility of reporting the changing face of technology.

    What does it take for your financial brand to go beyond the arc?

    What does it take for your financial brand to go beyond the arc?

    There are so many interesting paths that financial services and fintech have taken the past decade. How we serve customers across the landscape of products and services has seen a sea of change and the addition of digital experiences as the business model has changed. Yet, when we think about the ways that financial brands can go down the wrong path, the list of lessons is a long one indeed. To avoid some of these pitfalls, it is important to truly understand and appreciate your customer experiences, those journeys that shape the connectivity between brands and the customers and communities they serve. In this episode of One Vision, Bradley speaks with Steven Ramirez, CEO of Beyond the Arc, as he speaks about how his firm works with financial brands to better understand their data, their technologies, and their relationships with the people they serve.

    That time when magic robots helped you get a loan

    That time when magic robots helped you get a loan

    When was the last time you applied for a loan or some form of credit? Was it a magical experience? Did it take just a few minutes from application to funding? What if robotic process automation could mimic the human element for the more common requirements for lending and what if the majority of these, often tedious, parts of the loan application process could be done simply through a mobile phone? There are many efficiencies still to discover in financial services, and automating more and more of the customer experience can make perfect sense while it frees up real well-trained humans to talk to customers when they need you most. In this episode of One Vision, Bradley chats with Joseariel Gomez Ortigoza, founder of Shastic, a companion application that helps make any process at your financial institution or fintech that much more efficient and customer-centric. Join us to hear why this matters, and how more processes can go Beyond Good when it comes to customer experience.

    How can more spending lead to more giving?

    How can more spending lead to more giving?

    When we think about the way we spend money, we might think that the opportunity cost of that spending is what we cannot save or what we cannot invest. But what about the opportunity cost of not giving? Think about how much you have donated to charities or causes throughout your life, whether it was in the form of money or your time. What if every time we spent money, we saved some and simultaneously helped the organizations that take care of people in the most need across our communities? This needs to become standard practice within the financial services ecosystem, because we can make banking better. In this episode of One Vision, Bradley chats with Susan Langer, the CEO of Spave – recent winner of Best of Show at Finovate Spring – as she talks about how her team has built a way to integrate spending and savings activities that help share purpose and value everyday. It’s time to rethink spending and savings and giving – now we can do all three at once.
